Next Genealogy Over Lunch to feature new ways of using data
For the next Genealogy Over Lunch, Scout Calvert, research data librarian, will share some projects that explore new ways of encoding genealogically relevant data that can also contribute to organizing data and family groups beyond the pedigree and family group charts.
For example, “Enslaved,” a project from Michigan State University and the Oikos Ontology both use “linked data” structures to make it easier to bring disparate data points together and identify new connections and groupings, allowing historians and genealogists to uncover hidden stories.
Join in the online discussion at 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 20. Register here to receive the Zoom link.
Genealogy over Lunch is a University Libraries’ group designed to help individuals explore and organize family history, which meets every third Thursday of the month. The group welcomes all faculty, staff and students.
